Frequently Asked Questions

How does the storage temperature relate to shipping conditions?
The storage conditions that a Sigma-Aldrich catalog and label recommend for products are deliberately conservative. For many products, long-term storage at low temperatures will increase the time during which they are expected to remain in specification and therefore are labeled accordingly. Where short-term storage, shipping time frame, or exposure to conditions other than those recommended for long-term storage will not affect product quality, Sigma-Aldrich will ship at ambient temperature. The products sensitive to short-term exposure to conditions other than their recommended long-term storage are shipped on wet or dry ice. Ambient temperature shipping helps to control shipping costs for our customers. At any time, our customers can request wet- or dry-ice shipment, but the special handling is at customer expense if our product history indicates that the product is stable for regular shipment. See Shipping and Storage for more information.
Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?
If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.
How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?
The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.
How do I find price and availability?
There are several ways to find pricing and availability for our products. Once you log onto our website, you will find the price and availability displayed on the product detail page.

What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?
Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS.To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product.
What is the inhibitor used in Product No. 700479, Ferrocenylmethyl methacrylate?
The inhibitor used in this product is 2,2´-methylenebis(6-tert-butyl-4-methylphenol) (CAS registry number [119-47-1]), which is a non-discoloring and non-staining stabilizer. It is widely used in industry especially in natural and synthetic rubber.
How can the monomer ferrocenylmethyl methacrylate, Product 700479,be polymerized?
Generally, Product No. 700479 can be polymerized with an anionic initiator such as butyllithium (Product No. 230707) or lithium aluminum hydride (Product No. 531502). Or it can be radically polymerized using an initiator such as 2,2´-Azobis(2-methylpropionitrile) (AIBN, Product No. 44109).
What applications can Product 700479,Ferrocenylmethyl methacrylate, be used for?
Thin films of poly- ferrocenylmethyl methacrylate can be used for biosensing applications, taking advantage of the redox behavior of the ferrocenyl unit.
